Andersonic zooms back into action!

The latest issue of Andersonic, the smashing zine dedicated to the projects of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson, is now available.

Issue 26 includes an interview with the late Shane Rimmer, the actor who gave voice to Thunderbirds Scott Tracy, this interview focusing on his scripts for Captain Scarlet.

Also in the mix is “The Child with the Man in his Eyes” – a look at Joe 90 from a modern perspective; the history of the Airfix Angel Interceptor kit; and “When the Machines Rock”, a look at the robots and AI of the Anderson series.

Episode reviews this time out focus on the UFO story “ESP”, Stingray’s “Stand by for Action” and the Space:1999 tale “The Full Circle”.

There’s also final part of a UFO comic strip, “Trojan Horse”, the A-Z of Captain Scarlet, plus other reviews, news and more, including
the return of “Big Fan”.

Fans of Andersonic will be aware editor Richard Farrell is also an artist, and you may also be interested to know that he has some new Century 21-related designs (approved by ITV Studios) available on his Redbubble page.
